Emerson Los Angeles affiliated faculty Victor Corona authored a piece about the hit show “Euphoria” and its impact on Gen Z, ahead of the 2022 Emmy Awards on September 12. The show is nominated for 16 Emmy and Creative Arts Emmy nominations.
Senior lecturer Owen Eagan of the Communications Studies department observed the following:
I believe that the show’s success is mostly attributed to the fact that it reflects the zeitgeist, especially that of Generation Z. It also includes a broad array of characters whose stories are not often represented.
